After a five-year hiatus, the SFU Opera Studies program returns in January 2009 with two new non-credit courses. An 11-session course previews operas for telecast performances from the New York Met through spring 2009. The sessions will be hosted by four opera experts, including Opera Studies program director Alan Aberbach.

"The lectures are valuable background information for opera lovers of all ages," says Aberbach, "especially those who watch the Met performances on one of six movie screens showing the productions in the Greater Vancouver area." An eight-session course, The Power of Song: 19th Century Italian Opera, will be hosted by enthusiast Harvey De Roo. www.sfu.ca/operastudies
